Look at this awesome old print – fruits in shades of faded reds, greens, and orangesI I just love it and think it might suggest a color palette for a future quilt. It was $7.00 at a thrift shop. I set it on the mantle for now.
Becky asked if I wanted to go to the fair today (I thought she knew something I didnt) and when we got there it was set-up day which is what I thought. Passing through Britt we stopped at the tiny quilt shop there and I bought these Australian fabrics for my Gypsy Wife quilt.
They are inspiring me to try out a block. I am attracted to these fabrics but still don’t really understand how to make them work the way I want them to work with other prints. Trying again to be brave. Ha!
